A literatura acadêmica brasileira segue a tendência da literatura internacional, a qual tem demonstrado crescente interesse sobre as transformações no sistema capitalista causadas pelas novas tecnologias digitais, sobretudo as plataformas digitais e as tecnologias a elas associadas. Este texto para discussão tem como objetivo sistematizar e analisa...
Preprint
The digital platform economy has grown in the past decade and has caught the attention of policy-makers and scholars. There is evidence in the literature that this new configuration of economic activities has implications for the sovereignty of data produced within a national frontier, market concentration, competition patterns, and data privacy. D...

Digital platforms have positioned themselves at the center of global flows of capital, knowledge, and work. Their ability to influence and organize these flows makes it imperative to understand the locational decisions of platform companies. This paper explores new evidence on the digital platform economy geography. Our objective is threefold. Firs...

Despite the existence of studies addressing the historical development of digital platforms, none of them has yet drawn a coherent and comprehensive interpretation of the emergence of scientific digital platforms. The previous literature (i) focuses on specific scientific practices; (ii) does not reach far enough back into the past; (iii) does not...

Studies investigating the relationship between artificial intelligence (AI) and science tend to adopt a partial view. There is no broad and holistic view that synthesizes the channels through which this interaction occurs. Our goal is to systematically map the influence of the latest AI techniques (machine learning, ML and its sub-category, deep le...

In this Discussion Paper, we focus our analysis on the Lattes Platform – a public initiative developed endogenously in the late 1990s which was very innovative – since it is a representative case of a scientific platform and is a paramount tool for the Brazilian scientific system. Although there are many academic studies published using data provid...

Article

The main goal of this article is to understand the process of formation of the sustainability transitions (ST) research field. The working hypothesis of this article states that the field arises through a process of speciation: gradual differentiation, from an older and already established research field (innovation studies). This exercise is usefu...
Article
Full-text available
The advancement of digital technologies in the last decade has motivated analysis regarding a new era in capitalism. Most of these analyzes, however, are narrow in scope, as they only address isolated technologies. In addition, they are short-lived, as they do not recognize the links between these digital technologies and the preceding block of inf...

Thesis
Full-text available
This dissertation critically analyzes the conceptual framework of the Sectoral System of Innovation (SSI) approach. Industrial economics literature has already used industry as an analytical tool for the study of mesoeconomic transformations for some time. Why develop another perspective on the same level? We investigate if the SSI could be conside...

Due to its pervasiveness, ICT-based technologies permeate distinct economic sectors and even though their production is concentrated in relatively more developed countries, all the societies adopt those technologies and suffer their positive and negative social impacts. This research addresses the following research question: how can ICT-based technologies empower political participation?
Project
To provide a rationale for the public participation in the digital economy, more specifically for regulating and operating digital platforms In the wake of digital technologies' revolution, States were pushed into developing their National Digital Policies. It is common that these policies strongly address data privacy issues, while they struggle to foster a data economy; invest in digital technologies development as well as digital infrastructure; nonetheless, less attention is paid to the role of digital platforms and their ecosystems and there is no suitable framework to deal with this issue. Digital platforms connect actors in economy and society to enable exchanges or the sharing of resources. They have grown from small business to huge governors of markets and social innovation spaces. Some argue that these private companies have become the owners of societies' current infrastructure. Therefore, we ask how National Digital Policies should address digital platforms and their ecosystems. We look to the current experiences of platform regulation and platform development to provide the policy makers a minimum viable framework of digital platform's governance.
